Get a Big
When you give your child a Big, you’re giving them one more positive and caring adult in their life and making a big impact on their future.
- Are more confident
- Are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
- Do better in school

- Feel better about themselves
Arm your child with another awesome adult. As a parent and guardian, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By providing them with an extra caring adult, you’re continuing to help set them on the path to success.
We match children from one-parent or non-traditional households between the ages of 8 and 13 who reside in the Denver metropolitan and Pikes Peak regions with a caring adult who is compatible with your child based on their shared personalities and interests.
